Knitting the ZickZack ScarfWhen Sara started knitting a ZickZack scarf last year, she caused quite a stir on our Black Sheep Make-A-Long Facebook page. Sara had spotted this stylish scarf on a friends Instagram post and just had to cast it on the needles herself. Straight away she knew which yarn she fancied trying out on this zig zag striped scarf design. It had to be Stylecraft Head Over Heels All Stars yarn. Sara chose the shades Red Pots and Splash, quite the contrasting colour combination, but when knitted together they work beautifully.
We have a kit available for this colour option. Find the kit here.
The ZickZack scarf pattern is designed by Christy Kamm and is available free from Ravelry. It was published on Ravelry in 2014 so it has been around for many years and you could well be reading this having previously knitted one or two yourself.
Sara enjoyed knitting her ZickZack scarf and found the pattern really easy to follow. It was a great project to pick up and just know what comes next without having to concentrate too much. Watch Sara talking about knitting the scarf in the video below.
We shared a photo of Sara's ZickZack scarf on our newsletter (March 2019) and Sara got lots of great comments from everyone. It wasn't long before knitters in our Facebook group had cast on too. Many people are happily shared their scarves, even if they were part way through. Take a look at how different this scarf can look when you combine varying stripey or plain yarns together.

Sara's second ZickZack was knitted in a combination of WYS Signature 4ply - Passion Fruit Cooler and Stylecraft Head Over Heels All Stars - Saltaire. We have a kit available containing both these shades.
Brenda - Stylecraft Head Over Heels All Stars - Worldgate & Saltaire.
Jean - Fyberspates Vivacious 4ply - Peach Bellini and Peak District yarn for the contrast.
Jean - Stylecraft Head Over Heels - Red Pots and another shade which Jean didn't keep the ball band.
Karen - Sirdar Baby Crofter 4ply.
Brenda - second scarf in Stylecraft Head Over Heels All Stars - Pool and Ossie.
Christine - Stylecraft Head Over Heels All Stars - Pool.
Kerry - Stylecraft Head Over Heels All Stars in shades Pool and Splash. Chosen by Kerry's grand-daughter because she loves swimming.
Vivien - opted for Regia Cotton Color Passionfruit and Pomegranate.
Claire - Stylecraft Head Over Heels All Stars in Splash and Red Pots.
It's not just for 4ply yarn though. Why not try it in something a little thicker? Like Black Sheep Lucy has done. Lucy knitted this scarf with 3 shades of Rico Fashion Modern Tweed Light and Soft Aran.
